CFP: “Intelligence,” Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association (JMMLA), Spring 2024

The Journal of the Midwestern Modern Language Association invites submissions for a Spring 2024 special issue on the theme of “Intelligence.”

In 2021, as a consequence of the pandemic, schools and colleges across the country placed a temporary freeze on standardized testing, reinforcing doubts regarding the necessity and efficacy of such tests to assess intellectual potential. Soon thereafter, the November 30th 2022 launch of ChatGPT-3 elicited responses ranging from the apocalyptic (the software is a huge step toward artificial general intelligence) to the skeptical (the software is not and cannot be intelligent).

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2023-2024 issue. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books published in the last several years that are in some way related to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.

THE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP “NOT DISABLED, JUST DIFFERENTLY-ABLED”

“NOT DISABLED, JUST DIFFERENTLY-ABLED” is the motto-title of this WORKSHOP as it is intended to raise awareness and help us change perspective not only of the way we perceive people with additional needs but of the way it may be faced with exclusion because of the lack of knowledge. As luck would have it, over the years, there has been a shift in the way society views people with special needs from "disabled" rather to "differently-abled". This is a comprehensive phrase that is used to promote a more inclusive and respectful approach to disability, highlighting the unique skills and refreshing perspectives that individuals withspecial needs bring to society.

Navigating the security in the future of digital writing among technological transformation Living in this post-pandemic age, the insecurity from fear, suffering, and spacial constraint is now extended by technology to a new setting: academia, particularly the writing classroom. The latest technological transformation, like AI-powered writing assistants and tools, are challenging traditional writing pedagogy and practice, challenging us to work with such a “technological problematic” (Sundvall 5). In the past, technological transformations, such as personal computing and the advent of the internet, have established the field of digital writing.

Poetic Movements

updated: 
Thursday, September 7, 2023 - 12:46am
ACLA 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

The poetic term “strophe” carries a long-standing implication of movement. It refers to the first part of an ode and is defined as a unit of movement with a song performed in Ancient Greek Tragedy by the chorus as it turned one way (strophe), then another (antistrophe) and then stood in its track (epode). In subsequent definitions, it came to be associated with the song of troubadours and became known for its flexibility in discussing poetic performance with music, dance, gesture and breath. Apart from strophe, movement is also implied in the description of other poetic terms.

NeMLA 2024: Extending Jouissance: The Excessive and The Transgressive in Contemporary Texts (in Boston, MA)

Saturday, September 30, 2023

Jouissance, the iconic Lacanian concept, means “surplus enjoyment,” where excessive pleasure converts into unpleasure and even pain after going beyond the subject’s affective or sensory capacity. Inherited from Freudian psychoanalysis, combined with Bataille’s eroticism, Marx’s surplus-value and adapted to feminism and socio-political theory by Cixous and Žižek, the connotations of jouissance have often been revised and reconfigured.

TRANSFORMATIONS 

 

JOIN CEA IN ATLANTA!

 

The Big Peach. The ATL. The Dogwood City. Atlanta is a city always reimagining itself. The city’s history parallels America's own complicated and continuing story. This spirit of TRANSFORMATION—the theme of CEA 2024—is captured in the city's seal featuring a phoenix rising from the ashes. The image captures Atlanta's resilience as a city in how it emerged from the devastation of the Civil War to become a modern industrial metropolis, the center of the movement for Civil Rights, and what the New York Times describes as “hip-hop’s center of gravity.”

 

Reimagining Premodern Disability: Excess, Surplus, Gain

updated: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2023 - 11:48pm
NEMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

This panel puts forward premodern disability as enhancement, surplus, or even reward, drawing from the concept of “disability gain,” coined by Rosemarie Garland-Thomson (Fox, Krings, Vierke, 2019), to reformulate disability as gain, instead of loss, or as a resource. The concept is based on H-Dirksen Bauman and Joseph Murray’s concept of “Deaf gain,” which approaches Deafness as a benefit that expands social, cultural, intellectual, and creative fields (2014). While this concept has yet to be applied to premodern disability, reading disability in premodern texts through the lens of “disability gain” may allow the modern scholar to reframe and discuss the premodern body outside of ethnocentric systems.

Unexpected Excesses: Nonviolence in Contemporary Transgressive Fiction

To transgress is to exceed, violate, or infringe upon a law, rule, or convention. When transgression occurs, it often manifests as violence — crime, terrorism, bodily mutilation, etc. — because these are obvious signifiers that a significant legal, social, or moral boundary has been crossed. But the mechanism of transgression, which is always present in society and always necessary for its evolution, can also take subtler forms, manifesting as disgust or abjection (Julia Kristeva), sexuality or eroticism (Georges Bataille), laughter or carnival (Mikhail Bakhtin), etc.
